The power of music

This I came across on YouTube, and was a fantastic piece of film that shows you the power of music.

We follow Henry, who has been in a nursing home for 10 years, constantly has seizures  he barely speaks, he is slumped over all day, and rarely answers questions with more than “yes” or “no”.

His daughter at the nursing home explains how he used to walk her and her brother down the street, singing and dancing and swinging round lamp posts, and it is difficult to see him now.  They then tell Henry that they are going to put his music on for him.  He isn’t bothered about whether he gets to listen to it or not.  The ipod contained his favourite music from his youth.

Watch this video to see how it alters his personality, and brings him back to life
